HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- One of two people charged in a road rage shooting caught on video along the North Freeway is out of jail.

The state requested that Greene have no contact with the victim and that he not possess any weapons or ammunition.

ORIGINAL REPORT: Road rage may have sparked N. Harris Co. shooting captured on camera

A man and a woman have been charged in a shooting incident that authorities say stemmed from road rage in north Harris County.

The other suspect in the shooting, Nazly Ortiz, was given a $300,000 bond for the same charge, but at last check, she was still in jail.

The incident happened Tuesday on I-45 and Parramatta, near FM-1960. The couple got into some sort of road rage fight with another car that had an adult and a 2-year-old child inside, investigators said.

When both cars came to a stop, Greene allegedly got out and assaulted the victim, and Ortiz was captured on cellphone video firing two shots at the victim with a handgun as he drove off.

A nearby dealership was struck, officials said. No one there was injured.

The victim told ABC13 he was grazed by a bullet on his head. He said it didn't bleed, but the area was swollen.

The 2-year-old, who the victim said is his nephew, was hit by shattered glass but is OK.

The two suspects were arrested shortly after the incident and went before a judge on Wednesday, where Ortiz reportedly claimed the shooting incident happened during the morning rush hour, and that she feared for her safety after the victim allegedly almost hit them with his car.

The judge did not set their bail, instead leaving that decision to another judge. The couple has been in Houston for two years, and the woman is from Colombia.

Greene is a combat veteran who served in the Navy and has a 10-year-old son.

Ortiz is not a U.S. citizen. She is from Colombia and has a cleaning business she runs with Greene.

It appears that the man and woman are in a relationship, though it's unclear if they are married or engaged. They have both been in Houston for two years, officials said.
